Hi guys,
Selling a fantastic Heuer Autavia 1563 "orange colors" for a good friend.
These caliber 15 Autavia 1563 are getting hard to find, especially in this condition.
Please don't confuse this 1563 with the later 15630 ( that has a mineral glass and not the much better looking plexi ).

So what are you getting here?

Case that is guaranteed unpolished. I have seen enough Autavia cases by now to recognize an untouched case.
Of course some very minor scrathes and nicks but in real a very good looking case with the sunburst effect completely intact.

Dial just perfect with no oil stains of scratches from the hands touching the dial.
Dial is also completely untouched with all the original tritium.
The chrono seconds hand is less orange and more towards yellow. I don't know if that happened naturally or wether the hand has been replaced.
Best of all, and with these orange colored Autavia's it's super important, is how strong the orange accents still are.
I have stressed it several times here, the orange is even much brighter in real than in the pictures. ( picture nr.8 comes close )
For some reason it is almost impossible to capture that fluo bright orange color. It's also impossible to reproduce when people want to repaint those accents.
Those orange accents make all the difference between just a good watch and a watch that the real collector is looking for.

Plexi in very good condition and even more important it's an original ( not a detail, these plexi's are getting very hard to find !!! ).
Tachymeter bezel in very good condition, turning and making the correct clicking sound ( all clicker balls present ).
Again, bear in mind what a good Tachy for 1163/1563 is worth.

Mechanically the movement is working perfect. No issues, chrono perfect as well.
Pushers very crisp and clean.
Caliber 15 movement, take a look at the picture to see how clean that is.

Model: Heuer Autavia 1563
Serial number: 245467 ( both serial and model number super crisp between the lugs )
Movement: Heuer caliber 15

I am selling this watch with a very nice light brown rally strap.
I also offer the opportunity to buy it with a NOS black corfam "small holes"

Price: 4650 euros ( fully insured shipping and brown strap included )
Optional: black NOS corfam: + 375 euros

Payment: bank wire or PP ( +4% to cover my fees )

( as always I give a full refund in case of any problem or in case the watch would not be as described )

Kind regards,
